GRADING POLICY

Summative Assessment (80% of each 9 Weeks Grade)

  • Given to evaluate student proficiency over several content standards
  • 4 - 5 summative grades given each 9 weeks
    • All grades may be reassessed ONE time AFTER teacher reteaching requirements have been met.
    • All reassessments should be completed during the 9 week grading period in which the standards are taught.
  • Last Summative Assessment will be a 9 Weeks Test
    • This is an opportunity for students to show cumulative mastery on high priority standards for the 9 weeks.
    • This assessment may NOT be reassessed but can replace the lowest summative grade, including any reassessment grades.

Formative Assessments (20% of each 9 Weeks Grade)

  • Given to evaluate student progress over a few content standards; designed specifically to provide detailed feedback on content areas which are below proficiency
  • 4 - 6 formative grades given each 9 weeks
    • possibility of all grades being replaced by corresponding summative assessment
